Right now, I’m having a great time East Forest School in Marienville, PA. Our teacher here is Mrs. Pospisil. I’ve been hangin’ out in the music room, meeting lots of new people, and learning all kinds of new things. This week I learned a song to help me remember the names of all 50 states. I also learned about rondo form and ostinatos. I got to work in the computer lab where I learned some interesting facts about music history and I’m also helping make radio shows about jazz! Today I got to take a close look at a tuba and help the first graders record a song. I’ll be posting some of these projects on my wiki soon.
In the evenings, I’ve been taking walks in the forest with TooToo, our teacher’s dog. She’s a golden retriever. In Marienville, there are lots of trees and lots of farms. It’s near the Allegheny National Forest and Cook Forest State Park. The leaves are starting to change colors and it’s just beautiful here right now!
Tonight we’re having a thunder storm. I was a little bit scared at first but now I’m getting used to it. It’s really kind of fun to watch the lightning flash through the sky and listen to the thunder. You have to be careful though – safety first!
More about my adventures coming soon!
